20 minutes ago, I was kinda sleepy, and I was about to get up and sleep, right after the episode of A State of Trance was over, then Armin Van Buuren announces something rather interesting. His exact words 'My next track is from the Egyptian duo, Aly & Fila'. Keyword being 'Egyptian'. I was even more shocked when I found out that indeed they were fully Egyptian, and had very Egyptian names indeed. I'm not always so patriotic, but I felt really proud. What makes them different to any up-and-coming artists? They've performed all over the world  Cairo to Cyprus, Netherlands to New York. They've played live with Armin Van Buuren, the #1. Name in the Trance scene, and remixed countless tracks, and collaborated with some of the biggest names ever (John O' Callaghan to name one). They're just as known as any other trance producer. I was incredibly impressed, and by the time the song was over, i'd done my research, and realized that they were indeed amazing enough to be hosted on such a prestigious show. I was proud because:
1) They're Egyptian
2) They can make PROPER trance music.

Their music's pretty damn awesome too, i just downloaded their new album 'Rising Sun', and already 1 track has attracted my attention to be in the SkyOne mixtape, so it's delayed for a few days!

Sometimes days I sit, staring out the window, watching this world pass me by - Eminem.

There's always a time, where you're in a situation. When everyone starts to get on together, and sociality increases, but you're not sure, whether to start going back to social life and drama, or stay out of it for longer. You see, the longer you stay away, the less they'll talk, and the more they forget. When they're all indulged in this new found social life, they'll forget about the people that used to be in their life, and you'll be forgotten, unless you do something about it. But the thing is, you don't to be involved, but you have to stay involved, or else you lose all social status. I, for one wouldn't care much about social status, I've been to both ends of the scale, but what to do, when everyone's getting along, but forgot about you? do you jump back in (with the risk of being called desperate), or just lay low?

It's not cool

Don't you hate the feeling when you really want to do something for someone, because you're certain it'll make them happier, and because they deserve it, but you simply aren't able to? It's one of the worst feelings, having someone do so many things for you, helping you, yet you can't pay them back? What made me think of this is a few days ago, We were all in the car. Me my brother and my parents. Let me give you some background info though, My brothers college funds are A LOT (and i mean a lot) and my mum doesn't work, so theres a lot of pressure (financially on  my dad). I pitty him, because he busts his ass 10 hours a day, to make money, and yet most of it goes to our education, which is crap, because he hasn't got that much money left for himself. If I had the heart, i'd leave school, just so he can enjoy himself for a bit, but he wouldn't want that, he wants all this education to pay off, and i'm determined to make him proud (though at this pace i'm not sure its happening). So we were driving along, and my dad saw a BMW 7-Series, the most expensive (I think) and most luxurious car BMW make, and he said 'I really like that car' and he went on for a bit about it, how it looks, etc... That man has been working endlessly, to live a decent life, but he hasn't got the money or time to enjoy himself. I feel spoilt, and unjust, since I living life, and messing around, and he's working his ass off. But I know one thing for sure, I owe everything to him, and i'm determined to get him that car, in a few years time, once i'm in college, and I get a job, i'm saving money to get him that BMW, before I get a car, because really, who deserves it more, the boy who's had fun on his fathers expense? or the man that's given his life to his children's education?

He's getting that BMW 735Li, end of.


Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

The most emotional words I've heard for a while now. Invictus was a short poem written by the English poet, William Ernest Henley. You probably wouldn'tve heard of him, but he wrote the most influential poem (in my opinion) ever.This here is the first prose, the rest of the poem is here.

Onto to today's post. Ask yourself a question. What is the reason behind every quarrel? What is the reason behind every broken relationship? What is the reason behind every single breakdown? People giving too much of a fuck. I thank God for giving me the gift, of not caring what others say, and not letting it affect me. I believe God gave everyone this gift, they just have to find it. If my all my friends came up to me and told me they hated me, and i had no social life, i'd nod, and get back to whatever I was doing. You can tell me that everyone talked behind my back, and i wouldn't give any more of a fuck. I simply don't need any of this, because it doesn't need me, gettin' me? The whole idea is not letting anyone demise you, or bring you down, by being unconquerable. Why do people cry about the slightest oscillation in their social lives? Because they're too attached to it, they think it's an essential part of their life, and i'll agree, it's essential. But when it all falls apart, you can survive without it, you can live a better life, and start a new page, just keep fighting 'till it's over. Music is my only companion if it all goes down, along with running. 

To stray off-topic for a bit, when people ask what I do in my free time, I say i run, then they all go 'but you're not fat blah blah blah'. Their minds immediately think of running as a fat-burning activity. I know it may look like it is, but i jog for anything BUT to lose weight, jogging is my way of releasing stress, and expressing myself. I jog to prove myself wrong, to prove the ultimate saying, 'never judge a book by it's cover'. You know those show-off-I-can-whoop-your-ass-with-my-abs kind of guys? They wouldn't think that I, the 107KG 6'2" person I am, can probably outrun them, and run further than all of them put together. I'm not bragging, I'm just saying. Never judge.

Back to the post, The way I see it, is not getting too attached too anything (or anyone), because if it all collapses, what are you going to do? besides let it affect everything else that hasn't collapsed, causing IT to go wrong. If any of that makes sense, Thats the point i'm trying to get accross. Don't let anyone/anything get you, because the only harm done is to you, not anyone else, and if you let them get to you, it'll make them happy getting you down. Keep the faith, and you'll see that you might be better off without it.

Tramontana R

Name says it all, just another Spanish Supercar firm-wannabe. Or is it?
The Tramontana R is the brainchild of an Indy car racer (I forgot his name) and I must say, He's got one hell of a brain.
Firstly, that gorgeous racer body. Am I the only one that things that this is one of the most beautiful cars ever to roam these streets. The only MINOR issue I have with the looks is that front end, it doesn't go with the sleek F1 body, or am I blind?
Nonetheless, this is still a dangerous machine, it DEFINED dangerous. Behind you're terrified passenger, hidden under a lattice of carbon fiber, Is a Benz sourced 5.5L Twin turbo V12. The thing with the output, is that theres a knob in the cockpit (I know that sounds extremely perverted). There are 2 modes. DEFCON 5: Setting the engine output to 550HP, modest if I may say. This mode is for trips to the store (If you had this car though, you wouldn't go to the store, the store'll come to you, it costs €500,000). If you want to be a badboy behind the wheel, notch it up a bit, but hold on. Theres no 'bit'. Its straight to DEFCON 1: 770 EspaƱol-i Horses. 203MPH, 0-60MPH in 3.6 seconds, and 1268KG. Need i say more than:
'Tonight. We dine in hell. Or the state car impound.' (And R.I.P. Tramontana R's rear tires)

It just looks like an F1 racer, those massive side intakes are just not enough for words, just amazing. The line across it, continuing over the the back. It's just gorgeous sometimes. The only thing that would make it prettier is a roof-less version. Oh look, they made one!
I have to say i'd rather be in that picture than to be in an F1 racer. (Not really, i'm just stating that i'd LOVE to drive that.) But look at it take that corner. How much more controlled does it get? For gods sake Hamilton's MP4-25 has more body roll in a corner! To sum it up, it's just a gorgeous piece of automotive perfection. Sorry i keep going on and on about how it looks in that picture, I just keep glancing up, and every time i see it taking that corner, i'm tempted to re-emphasize how pretty is. F1 style intakes, F1 style angular body, it's just lovely. 
I think you'll have to conceit, that is the best-looking paint job. ever. Artic Camo in the Alps. Brill-fucking-tastic (excuse the language, it's to help get the point across).
It IS the best paint job ever. It's a Tramontana R in military jet liveries. In the immortal words of Terry crew:
' i want somma datt'
Get used to seeing this view, because if i'm driving, that'll be the only view you'll see. (Hint hint, wink wink)

What time is it?

It's summer time! (i hate high school musical). Summer can be broken down into many things. The main ones being:

  • Party
  • Sleep
  • More partying
  • More sleep
  • Even more sleep
  • Going out
  • Even more partying
  • All the above
Great summer eh?
Summer is also an uncertainty when it comes to blogging though. It's either i'll blog very well, or forget Between the lines even exists... The probabilities are on the latter... But hey, probabilities said Holland wouldn't exist, and guess what? It still does. But I think i'll be blogging a fair amount this summer, balancing it out with PARTY and a few other things. 

Till next time Kuwait

Coming soon...

Coming to a club near you soon... 

I want - now

Straight to the point - the top five cars I want. Oh and, if you don't know cars, just skip this post, because all you'll say is 'oh thats old/ugly', theres more to a car than the age or speed. Enjoy!

5. Koenigsegg Agera - It's a brilliant car, goes like a bat out of hell, and looks gorgeous, even the price tag at +$1 Million is semi-justifiable, because of the engineering and passion put into this car. But I just wouldn't pay that much on a single item (unless I was rich enough). And also, its a bit hard to live with. You'll be lucky to carry a passenger, your insurance papers, and a pack of M&M's. For those reasons, its at the bottom of my list.

4. Pagani Zonda Cinque - It's just a petrolhead's wetdream. It is bite-the-back-of-your-hand beautiful. It will go into the history books, as one of the most stunning masterpieces ever engineered. It's a hardcore stripped out racer, coupled with an ear-piercing Mercedes - Benz sourced V12, producing (though the correct terminology is holding back) 678 ferocious Italian horses. It's just the perfect car, but then has the same problem as the Agera. 1 Million English Pounds - KD500,000 give or take. I know its fast and gorgeous, but really, it's a bit ridiculous... (but i still adore it)
3. Audi RS6 - One Mean Machine. Why? Because it looks like a normal family sedan... But oh my lord it's a beast. Don't let that discrete sculpture fool you, this beast is packing 572 Horsepower, and a top speed of +200MPH. Bi-Turbo 5.0 Litre V10. Ever wondered where the monster in your closet moved to? Under the 2010 RS6's Hood. - It's not a bad price either, it's just a bit expensive for me, which is why its number 2.
Seriously, a family sedan with Recaro racing seats? (I'm not complaining.)

2. Competitions heating up now, this is my favourite, and current (realistically) 'planning-on-buying-in-the-future' car. The Nissan GT-R. Why? People say it's ugly, and doesn't live up to its father's name, the R34. I agree and disagree. It's not AS customizable as the R34, I agree its not as pretty, but it still is, non the less of a brilliant machine. Grip? Check. Speed? Check. Power? Check. Everything to make a perfect sports car? Check. It's techy, It's fast, It's geeky. I love it. Oh, and it's KD25,000.
A price worth paying in my mind...
Front wheel to the back, i think it's gorgeous. It's the front that let it all down.
Any where, any time, any speed, any weather, it will take a corner - supercar style.
Geeky Mutli-touch display screen. 
I like.     Alot.
Simplistic in design. Brilliant.
With the white seats, I find that simply one of the best budget supercars interior ever made. Just look at it.

1. 1967 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 'Eleanor'. Ask anyone above the age of 17, what the best muscle car is and he'll/she'll reply  'Eleanor'. I prefer the 2001 remake of the film, and sorry, as old as it may seem, this beast shall not be quiet. It may be 43 years old, but god all-mighty will it put up one hell of a fight before it CONSIDERS giving in. The special one used in the movie is the ultimate Ford. Sorry, I just love it...
It's just 'Beautiful Dangerous' in the words of Slash. (Song goes brilliantly with the cars image)

It's just gorgeous, just one thing, Eleanor's packing a little extra juice than the stock 1967 Shelby. A stock 1967 Shelby, with the biggest offered engine, produced 300HP, a lot of ponies back in the day.
So tempted to press it...
The most infamous button on this planet.. Go baby go..
Classic 5 speed stick shift, no time to mess around with some paddle shifter. This is the real deal.

300HP In 1967 was a big deal. THIS 1967 Shelby Mustang Eleanor produces 770HP. And no, that wasn't a typo. Seven-Hundred And Seventy Horsepower. Coupled with a manual tranny, and Bye-Bye rear tires

Speedin' down a California freeway at sundown, wind blowing through your hair, radio on full blast, and you glance down to see how fast you're going, and you're immediately reminded that you're in an Eleanor. The perfect end to my day...

The Book Of Eli

Simply an amazing movie, need I say more? I wont spoil it for those of you who havent watched it, but basically Eli Walker (Denzel Washington) is a traveler in a post-apocalyptic earth, which is war-struck and devastated. All bibles on the planet were burned, but he had found the only surviving copy of the New King James bible. He's a traveler that has been walking for 30 years, because a voice told him to head west. He runs into many (and i mean many) struggles in the middle, yet he overcomes every-single-one. He's a weapons master, and at one point in the movie, takes out almost 10 armed men, with 1 machete. He's a master at close combat, and has never missed a single shot with his pistol and . He's never lost a fight in the movie.

I initially attributed it to his experience and his lifestyle, untill the final scene in the movie where he dictates the entire bible from memory. Walker's blind.

10/10 - Brilliant movie, if you haven't already, you must watch it
